I know that many CG's are unaware of the issues with using anti-psychotic meds in dementia, thought you might find this interesting.

It would be my hope that before such anti-psychotic drugs are used, behavior modification is tried.

In my opinion the very best is any book by Naomi Feil with the word Validation in it.
